Butter Boards?

Hey everyone,

Trying to find out what are the top boards for progressing in the butter and ground tricks area? I'm 140lbs so not a heavy guy. Let me know what you guys think!

Why don't you just learn how to press a snowboard instead?

I'm your size, and I'm going Evo, mainly because of it's stellar reputation for hitting the rest of the mountain for a soft board. I went 152 only because I won't hit the park exclusively. But 150 definitely was in the cards.

There is arbor draft (westmark if you want to keep all mountain capabilities).

There are also pure noodle boards everyone else can clue you in with, if that's what you really want.

Thats alright I am good now I was just seeing if the westmark popped up in the list because that is the board I will be getting this year. And I can press BA it is just a lot harder to learn spins and things when the only slopes we have to learn on are steep and icy. Thanks for the help guys

I would look into the Signal OG, Arbor A-Frame, Ride Arcade UL, Salomon Mans Board....

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I hear that a-frame is a noodle. Not good for anything except posing for Tail block photos
